Angle Grinder Injury Compensation Claims Information

Angle grinders are important apparatus in many industrial and manufacturing settings. Thanks to their power, precision and versatility, they can be used for a wide array of tasks, such as grinding and reshaping, cutting through concrete, metal or stone and polishing surfaces. These powerful machines incorporate a fast rotating wheel. Angle grinder wheels can be made from a variety of materials and the type of wheel used will vary depending on the task at hand. 

Misuse of these machines (or any abrasive wheel equipment) can easily lead to serious or life-changing injuries. As such, anyone operating an angle grinder should observe sensible safety precautions to protect themselves and those in the vicinity. Employers are responsible for ensuring that their staff are well-versed in safety procedures and issued with the appropriate safety equipment. 

If you have experienced an angle grinder injury in the workplace, you could be entitled to claim compensation. Our experienced team of no-win-no-fee solicitors can guide you through the process and help you to claim the compensation you deserve.

Please bear in mind that when it comes to angle grinder accident compensation, the sooner after your injury you make a claim, the more likely it is you’ll be successful. As a general rule, the window for making a claim is around three years. Unfortunately, if this time is exceeded it is unlikely you will be able to make a successful claim.

    What are the Most Common Angle Grinder Accidents?

    According statistics cited in a Health and Safety Executive manual on ‘Safety in the Use of Abrasive Wheels’, unsafe work systems are a leading cause of injury from abrasive wheel machinery. Your employer has a duty of care to you – and is responsible for providing a safe working environment. If you have been injured as a result of a lack of or improper safety measures, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

    Angle grinders are extremely dangerous pieces of machinery. In most cases, the injuries they cause involve lacerations or amputations. This can include deep cuts and the loss of hands or fingers. It is also possible that you could suffer serious injuries due to flying debris, including shards of metal or fragments of stone.

    In most cases, UK angle grinder accidents are caused by a lack of health and safety protocols, equipment or another person’s negligence. So long as the angle grinder injuries you’ve suffered weren’t your fault, we are here for you. Whether you’ve been injuries by a faulty angle grinder, or because you weren’t provided with the correct health and safety equipment at work, we are here for you.

    Who Is Responsible for My Angle Grinder Injury?

    It can sometimes be difficult finding who is actually responsible for an angle grinder injury. If you were injured by someone else using an angle grinder, it is likely that it was their fault. However, if you were the one injured, it could be down to anything from a lack of training or ineffective health and safety equipment. These can be blamed on your employer. In some cases, if you’re working with a faulty angle grinder, you may be able to claim against your employer or the manufacturer of the equipment.

    Your employer has a duty of care to their staff and are legally obligated to provide a safe working environment and take reasonable steps to mitigate the risk of injury. Precautions an employer may be expected to take to reduce the risk of angle grinder accidents include:

    • Appropriate training for staff on the safe and proper use of machinery and protective equipment.
    • Issuing suitable protective equipment to employees.
    • Testing and servicing machinery in line with manufacturer requirements.
    • Assessing and evaluating working practices with a view to improving safety.
    • Adjusting working procedures where the risk of angle grinder accidents is high.
    • Displaying clear signage around the premises informing staff and visitors of hazards and explaining any safety procedures that are in place.

    In order to pursue a successful claim against an employer, in the event of an angle grinder injury, your solicitor must be able to show a degree of negligence on the part of the employer.

    The employer may show that they have taken reasonable steps to reduce the risk of injury. If this is the case, the claim could be dismissed, as they met their responsibilities. However, if it can be demonstrated that they fell short in their duty of care, it’s likely that a successful negligence claim can be made against them.
